This volume from Piaget's laboratory in Geneva deals primarily with the development of notions of measurement and geometrical concepts like coordinates, angles, and areas. It is a companion piece to The Child's Conception of Space.

Summary. Four Piagetian formal thought tasks, three formal operational reasoning tests, and a test of verbal intelligence were administered to 90 scholastically above-average adolescents, 30 at each of three age levels (13, 16 and 19). The formal reasoning tests provided scores indicating level of formal reasoning in each of three content areas—biology, history and literature, respectively. It was hypothesised that formal operational skills are unifactor. With the use of maximum likelihood facto...

Conservation of substance, weight, continuous and discontinuous quantity, number, area, distance, length, 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional space and their relation to age, sex, IQ, MA, and vocabulary were assessed in normal and emotionally disturbed children in first and second grades. Although the emotionally disturbed children were 2 years older, their level of conservation was not higher than that of the normal children. In contrast, normal older subjects performed significantly better than no...

Summary. This paper reports on selected aspects of a study of fifty 8 to 10-year-old pupils all of whom obtained a WISC Verbal Score of 140 or more. Four issues are dealt with in connection with these gifted pupils: personality, mathematical attainment, logical thought, and the relationship between scores obtained on creativity tests and those obtained on the WISC Scales and on tests of logical thinking. The findings suggest that their teachers rated their personalities very much as American tea...

Many psychological theories predict that cognitions, affect, action tendencies, and other variables change across time in mean level as well as in covariance structure. Often such changes are rather abrupt, because they are caused by sudden events. To capture such changes, one may repeatedly measure the variables under study for a single individual and examine whether the resulting multivariate time series contains a number of phases with different means and covariance structures. The latter tas...

A study was conducted to investigate the relationships between cybergaming treatment groups and the control group (N = 99: ncontrol = 8; nlogic = 29; nspatial = 30; ncombination = 32) with success in the organic chemistry I course as measured by achievement over a 10-week period. The treatment groups included logic training, spatial training, and combination logic-spatial training. Students' ability was measured by pre/post exams using the Group Assessment of Logical Thinking (GALT) to measure l...

This study is an investigation into the ability of pre-assessment measures of formal thought ability and general achievement to predict students at-risk of poor performance in college- level general chemistry. Over a three year period, data on formal thought ability (as measured by the Test of Logical Thinking, or TOLT) and/or general achievement (as measured by the Scholastic Aptitude Test, or SAT) was collected from over 3000 students as they entered a general chemistry course. The outcome mea...

Robert Karplus (1927–90), who began his career as a brilliant theoretical physicist, switched to science education in the early 1960s. He made many substantial contributions to this field in addition to developing a complete K–6 hands-on science curriculum. Karplus provided his curriculum with a sound epistemological foundation, based on the work of Piaget. He developed an effective classroom teaching strategy, the learning cycle. He and his team used a scientific approach to curriculum developm...

Early approaches to science instruction in the United States consisted mainly of daily recitations from books and lectures. Use of the laboratory was unheard of prior to the mid 1800s. Physical materials and specimens, if used at all, were a means of verifying book or lecture information. But by the late 1800s, laboratory instruction became very popular because it was felt that firsthand observation and manipulation were useful in “disciplining” the mind. The idea of mental discipline stemmed fr...

Performance of 195 seventh-, eighth-, and ninth-grade students on the Test of Logical Thinking (TOLT) was used to identify differences related to five reasoning modes among the three classes and between male and female students. TOLT scores revealed substantial deficiencies in the development of student reasoning abilities, and only ninth-grade students had significantly better (p < .05) performance than seventh-grade students which was related to proportional reasoning problems. There were no s...

In this investigation, we analyzed the processes of knowing and interacting in an open-inquiry learning environment that was planned and implemented by teachers who used the metaphor of cognitive apprenticeship as a referent. Based on detailed analyses of students' conversations, we documented the construction of and changes in Grade 8 students' understandings as they engaged in inquiries for which they planned focus questions, designed data collection procedures, and interpreted the findings. T...

In an attempt to accelerate the development of formal operations in average young adolescents, intervention lessons relating to all formal schemata were designed in the context of school science courses. Over a period of two years, up to 30 intervention lessons were given by science teachers to their classes in eight schools. Boys who started the program aged 12+ showed a pre-posttest effect size on Piagetian tests of 0.89 SD compared with control classes. In terms of British norms for the devel...
